We know you will be plenty busy at
the fabulous Zaca Lake. But, for those of you that will be in
the area a little longer, or have some extra time on Sunday afternoon,
here is a quick guide to the area we'll be in.
Town of Solvang (5 miles
A Danish town in the middle of nowhere, but right near Zaca lake.
A must see.
Santa Barbara (33
Miles - South)
Pretty beachside city with lots of shopping, restaurants, beaches
for info about Santa Barbara area county parks.
Celebration of Harvest
The annual October wine harvest festival is happening Saturday
and Sunday October 13-14.
Santa Ynez Valley Visitor's Association:
Zaca Lake is in the heart of Santa Ynez Valley wine country. There
are many great wineries along Foxen Canyon Road that leads in
and out of Zaca Lake.
Madonna Inn (61 Miles
- North) Every room is a thematic daydream. The steak house in
pink leather and jewels is a gaudy treat. Gents, be sure to pee
in the waterfall urinal.
Hearst Castle (102
Miles - North) That zany billionaire.
Beaches and State Parks
(North of Zaca)
(20 miles Southeast of Zaca) Fishing and hiking recreation
Andersen's Pea Soup
Famous Danish Pea Soup on the interstate. Windmill friendly.
Barbara Zoo (Santa Barbara) a small zoo, for the kids
This is a very small sampling of the many many hotels and
motels in the area. The motel 6 is probably one of the cheapest.
